DNA pooling can provide an economic and efficient way to detect susceptibility loci to complex diseases. We carried out a genome screen with 400 microsatellite markers spaced at approximately 10 cm in two DNA pools consisting of 119 schizophrenia (SZ) patients and 119 controls recruited from a homogenous population in the Chang Le area of the Shandong(More)
BACKGROUND Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common arrhythmic complication after cardiac surgery. Several studies have compared the efficacy of landiolol and placebo or other agents in preventing new-onset AF in patients after cardiac surgery. In this study, we conducted a meta-analysis to determine whether landiolol is effective in preventing new-onset(More)
BACKGROUND Toxic epidermal necrolysis (TEN) and Stevens-Johnson syndrome (SJS) are severe mucocutaneous reactions that incur high mortality, and in which the systemic application of corticosteroids remains controversial. OBJECTIVE This study aimed to determine the optimal protocols for the use of corticosteroids and treatment measures. METHODS We(More)
The neural cell adhesion molecule (NCAM1) gene plays important roles in cellular migration, synaptic integrity and neurodevelopment. Multiple NCAM1 proteins are differentially altered in schizophrenia (SZ). A whole genome association study was first carried out on Affymetrix genome-wide human single-nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) Array 6.0 and two pooled DNA(More)
